Kangjiawan Pb-Zn-Ag-Au deposit, Shuikoushan ore field, Changning Co., Hengyang Prefecture, Hunan Province, China
Small Cabinet, 5.4 x 3.9 x 2.9 cm
These Chinese sphalerites are just amazing for their size and deep, gemmy wine color - they were snapped up very quickly when they came out as some of the best sphalerites ever, from anywhere! This one measures 3 cm and is beautifully isolated and showcased on a carefully trimmed matrix of grey quartz. It is complete, undamaged and has fine luster and clarity.
